Christmas Gift Idea

Since Christmas is no longer 'around the corner' but right at the door step, I thought I'd share a fun gift that's super easy and involves two of my favorite things--chocolate chips AND cookie dough. YUMMY! (You can use your favorite cookie dough of choice.)
Chocolate Chip Cookie Yule Log

Make up a batch and separate in half. Sprinkle flour on your surface and shape each half into a log approximately 10-12 inches long (you might have to add a little more flour).

Wrap each log in two layers of clear or colored plastic wrap and freeze.

When it's time to deliver, wrap each frozen log in festive tissue paper and tie ends with ribbon. (Since two logs equals one batch of cookies, I give two as one gift.)

Print out a label that says:

Chocolate Chip Cookie 'Yule' Log
Maybe 'yule' like them now,
Maybe 'yule' like them later!

{Don't forget adding the slice & bake instructions.}

Wouldn't it be nice to have some quick slice & bake cookies for when unexpected friends drop by?

And with such an abundance of delicious baked goods and sweets everywhere you turn during the holidays, it's also a nice treat just to save for later, say, when a cookie dough craving strikes the night of a blizzard! (Seriously! Been there done that!)
It's All Yummy Yule Logs Good!


  1. What a great idea for a gift, year 'round, not just at Christmas!

    And thanks for the update on Reva. Praying she's infection free and home before Thanksgiving.

    Happy weekend! :o)

    Love and hugs,


  2. That's a great idea! Thanks so much. Glad to hear Reva is doing better too.

  3. That's a good idea. Often when I crave homemade cookies I don't have time right then to make them.

  4. Oh my, I'm not good at this sort of thing, but it sure looks interesting.

    Just said a prayer for Reva. I think I've missed something here.

  5. Rejoicing with you that your sister is doing better! Hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving day.

  6. I think I would just eat it and not bake the cookies...


Thanks for taking the time to visit with me. I enjoy your comments very much. :)
